The day, organised by Grantham Events Group, was the biggest and best yet.

Events group chairman Tim Radley said: “We think it went exceptionally well. We had more on St Peter’s Hill than ever before and we had a cracking market.

“The George Centre was full of people and we had more than 2,500 people watching the lights being switched on.

“Both market traders and shop owners said they had a good day of trading.”

Tim said that South Kesteven District Council provided a huge amout of support to make the day a success.

l THE next project for Grantham Events Group is the annual St George’s day celebration in April.

Volunteers are needed to organise the event and help out of the day.

The group has a budget of around £10,000 for the event and aims to make it the biggest and best yet.
